was not a cliff. the term fiscal cliff was coined by ben bernanke. ben bernanke did not want us or did not want the country to get into the situation of higher taxes -- in large part, i think that would have made his job even harder because the higher taxes would have flowed -- slowed down the economy and there would have been even more pressure on the fed to engage in monetary easing, quantitative easing as it is called. the fed really cannot do all of that much more than it is doing. interest rates are at historic lows. bernanke did not want tax increases, so he was trying to control or affect what was going to be happening on the fiscal side. it was really more of a ramped than a cliff in the sense that the sequester cuts -- we will talk format that i'm sure -- but the automatic cuts that were put in place with the debt ceiling deal of the summer actually would come into play well into the year and some near the end of the year. there was or there is quite a bit of time on that. the tax rate increases, i think very few people actually felt there would be a major income tax increases on 98% o
